Yes, it is still a man's world, and it will be a long time before that changes. While I am female, I don't agree that "equality" should extend to mixed sporting events. Just the basic body build and mass of the majority of women makes this rather a silly thought. I would like to see more women's sports on TV, and pumped like the men's sports. Given that there are so many females who are now active in sports, I really believe the audience is there. Having a women compete, as in the upcoming Colonial event, with a bunch of men attracts an audience, but is not a true level field.
As for the WTS not allowing women to address the congregation via talks (are they still called the number 1 and 4 talks in the school?), well that's typical. When your Bible has been translated to fit your beliefs, it makes it really difficult later in the century to go back and change things.
